1990 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

SKU #950528 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This magnificent Lynch Bages has been drinking well since the day it was released and it continues to go from strength to strength. The biggest, richest, fullest-bodied Lynch Bages until the 2000, the fully mature 1990 exhibits an unbelievably explosive nose of black currants, cedarwood, herbs and spice. The majestic, classically Bordeaux aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, voluptuously textured, rich, intense wine with superb purity as well as thrilling levels of fruit, glycerin and sweetness. This beauty should continue to provide immense pleasure over the next 15+ years. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 1990 Lynch-Bages remains the towering Pauillac it has always been, even if Jean-Michel Cazes personally prefers the 1989. It has a riveting, graphite-infused bouquet that is brilliantly defined, very focused and sharp as a razor-blade. Poured directly against the 1990 Lafite-Rothschild, this Fifth Growth beats it hands down. The palate is very well structured; this is an aristocratic Lynch-Bages with impressive grip after 28 years. There is a symmetry underpinning this wine, a sense of energy undiminished by the passing years, that makes this 1990 Lynch-Bages so compelling. Just awesome. Tasted during the Christmas Dinner at Noble Rot restaurant. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of tar, currant and berries follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Still not completely ready, but so good anyway. (JS, Web Only-2007) Inner quote mark

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (4.7 g/l total acidity; 13% alcohol): Dark ruby-red with a garnet edge. Initially inexpressive nose opens with aeration to reveal aromas of red fruits, flowers, tar and minerals. Sweet on entry, with flavors of red cherry syrup, vanilla and milk chocolate, then develops a delicate animal nuance with air. The long finish features persistent notes of tobacco and kirsch. Typically seductive Lynch-Bages, and quite opulent in texture. (ID) Inner quote mark (1/2012)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dark blackish ruby. Both sweet and lively - fresher than many 1990s are tasting in 2015. Very racy and vivacious still. Rich but with a light sensation of iron. 18.5/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2015)
